One thing I love about Aime Austin's short stories is the cameo appearances of past characters of the Casey Cort and Nicole Long Legal Thriller Series! These gals are smart, savvy, and witty! They get themselves in a world of trouble in and out of the courtroom. Aime is my favorite legal thriller author—I love both series, always anxiously awaiting the next.
Set in 2008, In FALSE POSITIVE, Casey is engaged to Ron and has had her baby, Simon de Viera Pinherio. She is busy being a mom when her long-time next-door neighbors and friends, gay couple Jason and Greg (love them from the Casey Cort Series), need her help.
Jason is a doctor, and Greg, a former chef, are dads to their foster-to-adopt son, Mason, who is four years old. However, one innocent photo of Mason to the doctor (which the doctor asked for) caused a series of unfortunate events to unfold.
This a cautionary tale if you have young children. No more cute little photos we made thirty or forty years ago or could be construed as something more sinister by the Google bots.
Casey must call in all her favors with Nicole Long from the prosecutor's office, Children and Family Services, juvenile court, and social worker to get Mason back and clear the way for her favorite gay couple friends to be cleared to be foster parents and then adoptive ones. What saved their son, also caused them to lose him—no fault of their own.
We also hear from county prosecutor Lori Pope and Valerie Dodds from past books.
Casey Cort and Nicole Long fans will love this suspenseful legal short story! Always fun getting to catch up with neighbors, friends, and former co-workers of Casey and Nicole. What a treat and a fantastic short story.
